Have You Lost a Loved One Because of Someone’s Negligence?
Newman Boyer & Statham Ltd. represented a 66-year-old woman injured on a residential construction site who eventually died because of her injuries. Our firm successfully negotiated a settlement in the amount of $1.6 million for the decedent’s family, despite the defendant’s claim our client was trespassing on the property. If you have lost a loved one as a result of someone's negligence, speak with a Chicago wrongful death attorney to determine if you are entitled to compensation. Nothing can replace the loss of someone you love, but adequate compensation can help pay for the expenses incurred as a result of your loved one’s injuries and death.
In Illinois, a personal representative may bring a wrongful death action against a person whose negligence caused a person's death. The action is brought for the benefit of the surviving spouse and child or other next of kin of the deceased person. The action must be brought within two years of the death of the victim. The jury can award fair compensation for the deceased’s medical treatment, funeral expenses and loss of income for the decedent’s family, in addition to damages for grief, sorrow and mental suffering.
If you have lost a loved one because of someone's negligence, consult with a Chicago wrongful death lawyer who can file a wrongful death lawsuit for your benefit. He or she can help to get you a favorable settlement or jury verdict.
Newman Boyer & Statham Ltd. is a firm whose attorneys are experienced in handling wrongful death cases. They can help you to receive the compensation to which you are entitled for the loss of your loved one.
